Oatmeal raisin cookie


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 1 cup raisins or chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350F. Spray 2 baking sheets lightly with oil.

Stir flour with baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Beat butter with sugar in a large bowl until fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Using a wooden spoon, stir in flour mixture until combined. Stir in oats and chocolate chips. Spoon 2-tbsp portions of dough, 3 in. apart, onto prepared sheets. Flatten them slightly using your fingers.

Bake in centre of oven until edges are golden but centres are soft, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer cookies to a rack to cool completely. Store at room temperature in an air-tight container for up to 1 week.
